DD will be 11 soon and is having a disco/party in the local village hall. As there will be about 30 children do I do party bags? I'm thinking she's probably a bit old for this sort of thing, but would like to give them a little something to take home. A piece of cake and ......? Any advice much appreciated.

maybe something glittery from Claires ?

Anything from Claires, soaps, nail varnish, bubble bath, funky pens. And they're never too old for a few sweets or chocolate!

I did party bags right through primary, then put a stop to it. We had a mix of boys and girls, and didn't have time to look for different things for both. I bought cartridge pens from Partners as they were on 2-for-1 special offer so c. 75p each, a poppapoint pencil and poppapoint rubber, plus chocolate bars & a bit of cake. Apparently they thought they were really cool. Came to c. a pound (sorry pound sign not working on keyboard) each, but that was 3 years ago.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Think I'll probably do a giant cake and hope they'll be happy with a big piece of that to take home!

They sound good, but with approx 35 children coming (boys and girls) it's hard to know how many of each to get and also it's going to be a bit pricey!

i wouldn't do partybags for an 11 year old.
